Good morning 1S! laugh


How are you feeling today? I hope you are feeling positive and ready to learn! If we were at school today, we would have been doing P.E. Can you plan some extra exercise into your day? Look in the 'Extra Activities' link on the 1S page for ideas.


Please check the ‘Photos and videos of you and your work’ folder to see what your friends have been up to! There are lots of lovely pictures and videos.


Here is the link if you would like to start your day with Joe Wicks PE:


Here are some activities to complete today, but don't forget about the Zoom to the Moon activities and 'The Planets' song: 


Phase 5 Cheeky Chimps. You will need to log in to access this game.

Username: march20

Password: home




Phase 5

Then scroll down to ‘Phase 5b Interactive Resources - Weeks 5-7’ and find ‘Cheeky Chimps’.


Today we are going to focus on a letter having alternative pronunciations. I would like you to focus on the second row of letters: ow, ie, ea, er, ou. Read the word and decide how to pronounce the ow, ie, ea, er, ou, then drag the banana to the chimp on a word with the same pronunciation.

Please continue to practise your ‘27.04.20 Spellings’ for our test next week.


Start each day with a page from the Flashbacks. They're saved in the ‘Maths’ Folder. Remember, this will consolidate what we have already learnt! You should be on Week 4 Day 3 today. Did you get 4/4 correct? There is also a Flashback at the start of your learning video, you can complete this too.


Warm up: Can you count backwards in 10s from 100 to 0?

Break time

Time for a break! Go Noodle- Mood Walk:


To finish my description, I added an interesting ending that included a question. You will need to add an ending to yours, too.


The Moon is a natural satellite that was created 4.5 billion years ago. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. The moon is grey and white. You are not able to hear any sound on the moon because there is no air. Also, if you dropped two objects, like a heavy hammer and a light feather, they would land at the same time. As there is no air, there is no resistance. Everything and everybody would feel lighter on the Moon than they do on Earth. A person who weighs 60kg on Earth would only weigh 10 kilograms on the Moon because the Earth is 6 times bigger than the Moon. This makes the astronauts look like they are bouncing across the Earth’s surface. They wear protective suits and carry oxygen tanks so that they can breathe. The astronauts travelled across the Moon in a space buggy which looks like great fun and they left a US flag there. It is possible to see where the visitors to the moon have been because they leave footprints and tyre tracks in the dust. The craters in the moon have been there for millions of years. Some were caused by meteors crashing into the Moon’s surface. In the middle of some of the craters there are huge mountains. The Moon is certainly a very interesting place. Would you like to visit?


Check your full description of the Moon. Does it all link together? Have you added an ending? Did you include a question and use a question mark?


If you can, please take a photograph of your full description or even type it up so that you can send it to me by email. I would absolutely love to see your work.


I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!


Last week you learnt about Tim Peake who was the most recent British astronaut to visit Space but do you know who the first British astronaut was? Today's Reading Comprehension task will tell you all about...her.


There are 3 different levels: easy, middle and tricky. The answers are all included, too. You can choose one or try two or three different levels.

Who was the first Briton in space?


In May 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space. The Soyuz TM-12 mission, which included Soviet cosmonauts Anatoly Artsebarsky and Sergei Krikale...

Tomorrow, we'll watch a video that has just been made this week. In the video, Helen Sharman talks about her experiences in Space including how it was similar to being isolated at home like we are now.  

David Walliams is also reading a story each day. Here is the link:



Yesterday you named a range of different materials. I wonder how many different materials you found around your house...


Recap objects and the materials that they are made from by reading through this PowerPoint:

Today we are going to look at the properties of materials. We can use a range of words to describe what materials are like. Have a look through this PowerPoint and discuss it:

Here are some more properties. Can you read all of these tricky Science words? Try and learn 5 new words from these lists:


Today your task is to collect a range of objects from around your house. Touch each object to see what it feels like. How many different words can you use to describe the object? Look back to remind yourself of the words you could use. Can you think of your own describing words? Fill in this table:

I would like you to group the objects you have used today by their properties.


Can you put all of the transparent objects together?

Can you put all of the flexible objects in one group?

Have you got a collection of smooth objects?


Take one property at a time as some objects could go in more than one group.


Perhaps you could take some photos. They'll need labels adding to them, too. Here are some examples but remember your labels might be transparent, flexible or smooth, etc:

Have a great day! laugh
